Are you thinking of moving from Apple Music to Spotify or move to Apple Music from Spotify?
Since 2015, the controversy between Apple Music and Spotify has grown in the same way that people argue about iOS vs Android. Are you going to stick with your existing streaming service, or are you considering moving, as the music streaming service war brings podcasts and HiFi to the battlefield?
I've been a fan of Apple Music since its inception. I didn't mind if Apple deleted my whole library a few times. Then I didn't mind when certain songs seemed to be duplicates. Apple Music is currently having difficulty showing the right album artwork for some artists and is facing some reliability problems. Should I be concerned right now?
On the other hand, we've been covering all of Spotify's platform updates on a daily basis. It added podcasts, and preliminary data suggests that this was a success. It also plans to launch a HiFi tier subscription this year, and all of its apps were recently updated.
I used to be irritated by Spotify's user interface, but after comparing it to Apple Music, I've discovered that they're really similar. Check it out for yourself:
When you compare the rates, you'll notice that they're all the same: $9.99 per month for an individual subscription, $14.99 per month for a family subscription, and $4.99 per month for a student subscription. The difference is that Apple only provides Apple One, which makes it easier to stick with Apple Music because you can get iCloud, Apple Arcade, and Apple TV+ all in one box.
Individual Apple One plans are $14.95 per month, while Family Apple One plans are $19.95 per month: a great deal. Spotify, on the other hand, offers a free ad-supported version as well as a $12.99/month Premium Duo for two people who live together.
Depending on your needs, you will get a good deal on any of the facilities. If you're an Apple user, however, you may be wondering if Spotify will work on all of your computers. Spotify has an Apple Watch app, a macOS app, and a web app, but HomePod integration is not yet available.
For example, if you love sharing music and want to know what your friends are listening to, Spotify allows you to do so in real time. Spotify also helps you to listen to podcasts and listen to music at the same time. If you're looking for a good end-of-year recap, Spotify is a better option than Apple Music.
I'm considering moving to Spotify as an Apple One subscriber for all Apple devices integrated with Apple Music, and I'd like to know if you're satisfied with your new music streaming service.
